Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.
Friday, 5 March 2010
Oh dear it would appear that HMRC has had an outbreak of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
That at least would appear to be the conclusion to be drawn from the report in the Cambridge News, concerning the letters sent by HMRC to Sharone Freed (director of Freed Fencing).
The letters from HMRC were demands for tax.
Except that Mr Freed received 52 envelopes from HMRC, each containing 4 letters demanding sums ranging from £100 to £3K (grand total £39K).
Mr Freed is appealing the fines, which have been suspended pending a final decision.
HMRC told the Cambridge News:
"Incorrectly issued penalties are not the result of a system problem but failure to correctly follow procedure - this is being put right."
Surely the automated system, if working correctly, would have flagged a "procedural error"?
Tax does have to be taxing.
